    Uninstalling Ubuntu/Repartitioning Question


    Right now my computer is set up as follows:

    NTFS partition for Windows
    Ubuntu partition
    shared NTFS partition for data common to both (music, movies, etc)

    I would like to get rid of Ubuntu, remove the Ubuntu partition and merge the shared partition back into the original windows partition. How would I go about doing this?

    Hello and welcome!

    You can run gparted (a gui partitioning tool) from a liveCD such as Parted Magic to delete the Linux partition then merge the unallocated space into any other partition that resides adjacent to it on the drive. If you were using GRUB as your bootloader, you'll need to reinstall your Windows bootloader. Microsoft has instructions for doing that on their website.
